SAMPLE mittens used for testing and design development of our Hokkaido winter ski mittens. Small discoloration and markings on surface. Please note, all sample gloves and mittens are sold as is and not covered by NORRGEAR's manufacturer warranty.
Unlike the Hokkaido, the sample does not have double winter insulation front and back.
The sample is a warm snow mitten for cold weather. Handmade from goat leather. Palm and thumb have extra leather padding. The long cuff is waterproof 4-way stretch woven nylon and has an adjustable cuff cord. The mitten is tested in northern Norway.
The sample has single inner thermal insulation. Hipora® insert membrane and soft fleece liner, which effectively retain hand heat in freezing temperatures.
The outer shell is made from top quality goat leather across the back and front of the mitten. Goat leather has a high lanolin content, which provides better water resistance and durability than other alternatives.
Double leather layering across the palm and inside of the thumb reinforce the mitten's outer shell as well as reduce wear around gripping areas. The mitt's long gauntlet cuff is made from waterproof 4-way stretch woven nylon. The end of the cuff is fitted with a cuff cord, adjustable with one hand.
The thumb's goggle and nose wipe is soft napped suede leather.
The sample snow mitten liner has thin finger separators that help boost dexterity whilst ensuring warmth can still be effectively conducted between fingers. All leather work is double seamed. And seams are on the outside to improve comfort and reduce the risk for blisters.
The napped nose and visor wipe on the outside of the thumb is oversized for easy of use. A hook-and-loop fastener on either glove allows the pair to be kept together to prevent loss.
Comes with an elasticated pull toggle at the end of the cuff to keep out the snow. And, elasticated double stitching around the wrist to ensure the mitten has a snug fit.
The long gauntlet cuff is designed to be worn over your ski jacket sleeve to provide additional cold weather protection above the wrist.
The sample is a good option for cold weather skiing, snowboarding, ski touring, winter mountaineering and similar winter sports.
Suggested minimum temperature range for usage is 5 to -4 Fahrenheit (-15 to -20 Celsius). Please note, this is only a temperature guide. What feels warm to one person may feel different to another. Exposure time, perspiration and activity level will also impact the mitten's performance.
